Transportation and Lodging

TC Summer Camp is at 421 7th Street NW, Washington, DC, at the AIA District Architecture Center (DAC). See the Venue page for details about this location.

Because TC Camp is all about networking and sharing, why not start with the drive? If you’re interested in carpooling (either driving or riding), we’ve set up an account at where you can register:

Rather than trying to park in the City, we recommend that you park at one of the Metro rail stations that offer parking (free on weekends), and take the Metro to the Penn Quarter Station (on the Green or Yellow lines) or the Gallery PI-Chinatown Station (Green, Yellow, or Red lines). We are located a couple blocks from each station.


If you’re coming from some distance, you’ll probably want to arrive on Friday evening and drive back on Sunday, so that would need to be coordinated with the drivers and riders. It might also make sense for all people in one car to stay at the same hotel, so you can drive to/from the camp venue together as well.

If you’re flying in, there are two major airports nearby. Dulles (IAD) and Ronald Reagan Washington National (DCA). You can take Metro from DCA, but would need to rent a car or cab/Uber from IAD.


There are many hotels near TC Camp (Fridays and weekends are often lower rates). We’ve indicated two reasonable options near the venue, but it’s easy to find lower priced options further out from downtown. If you’re on a Metro line you can get in and out quite easily.


Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re having trouble finding a ride or have questions about transportation or lodging.
